Saltwick Sunset ...

Haha. Snap!

The light's nicer in your's though, as when I went I had difficulty finding a way down into the bay.

TV Smith A Punk Advert by Southend

TV Smith A Punk Advert

For me the singer's hand is distracting. If the shot were taken at a point where it doesn't obstruct the singer's face, it would help the composition greatly. The crop could also have benefited from a little more space on the RHS, as the current crop is a little claustrophobic as mentioned by Focus_Man above.

The singer's face is also quite underexposed, probably due to the white shirt throwing off your metering. Although this would result in clipped highlights on the shirt, I find this less of an issue, so long as the singer's face is clear and well exposed. I understand flash may not have been an option, as it often isn't with music photography. A pop of flash, carefully balanced with the ambient lighting would lift this image, if allowed.

Red lights can be a real issue with digital cameras. Boosting the green and blue channels slightly during editing can help to bring out detail and even up the colour slightly but the exposure needs to be bang-on in camera to be able to do this effectively.

I hope this helps.

Love the thinking behind this. Did you have to wet his clothes to stop him bursting into flames?

The Final Countdown

Quote: This one looks like you're up in front of the stage at his height, and not down below in the Press Pit. Given the insight to the exif data, I'm guessing you were within the crowd a few metres back?

I take a JML blue step type thing to festivals to raise me up a few inches so I'm not shooting all my shots right up the performer's nose Wink

Bloodstock's my favourite UK festival, so when I'm randomly looking through images I tend to gravitate to them Smile

Weird, the uploaded image seems to have lost a bit of clarity like it's been compressed twice. Oh well.

Nope. They had us shooting from the mixing desk at the back of the arena, behind the crowd. Sad

Hi Chris. Hammerfall were excellent as always. Smile you should say hello next time you see me about!

I can't do Bloodstock this year as a god friend decided to get married that weekend. It'll be the first I've missed for three years Sad

Are you referring to the reflected floor Nev? Mika had a shiny black floor covering put in for the gig, so the reflections are as shot. Smile

Cheers. Settings for this image were as follows:
Aperture Priority
Spot metering
+0.7 exposure compensation

I hope this helps Smile

Thanks. ISO 2800 I think.

Sabaton by theorderingone


It's the way it goes I'm afraid. My pictures seem to receive more interest when people know who the performer is. Very few people will have heard of Sabaton, that's why it gets skipped over I think.

Not to worry, it's their loss if they don't want to look Wink

Quote: Absolutely superb. Did you have someone holding a remote flash?

Nope. The stronger light from the side is from the spotlight shining from the sound desk.

Haha, of course. Might post one if I get the time tomorrow. It was absolutely chucking it down at the time though.

Yes, I see what you mean, but losing the 'white thing' (which was an operating table) would also mean loosing his knees. I'd normally leave a cropping decision like that to an editor/designer.

As for the dead space, do you really think the space is 'dead'. Sometimes the subject of an image needs a little space to breath, otherwise it becomes too cramped.

Thanks for commenting though.
